    No, I haven't looked at the EAS calibration as I have LLAMS and everything is working to spec. I've only put EAS into/out of TTM on my own car and other peoples'.

    I'd try it soon, just so you know if it'll work for you when you need it
    If at first you do not succeed, maybe your just no good and should quit!

    Perhaps. But I'll only need it if I've had to replace an EAS component that requires recalibration of the height settings. Bearing in mind that BBS were one of the first to offer a tool for Gen 1 EAS fault finding and recalibration, I've no doubt that the IQ can do the job it's designed for.
    I've looked at the settings and it seems straightforward to me, but I admit I haven't used it in practice.
    For emergencies, I have installed the GOE manual air up kit, LLAMS and an on board compressor.

    Well I give up. You seem to have it under control. Yes the photo shows 84psi of manifold pressure.
    According to them we can press the brake pedal and the throttle and pump up or tyres or the air suspension that they can't work out how to fix. I'm not trying to be difficult just trying to help.

    I'm not trying to be a pain in the arse, just pointing out a gap tool is due remote travel as per the original question. The IQ isn't

    Good call I think. It's one of those things that seems a waste of money, until it's not.

    I'm in Kalgoorlie, and my GAP has paid for itself more than once. Main issue was when I drove through some deep water and somehow the transmission calibration went out and the vehicle kept engaging the CDL. Would have been an expensive trip on the back of a truck to Perth if I didn't have the GAP tool - re-calibrated the transmission sensors and have not had the problem since. Also use it occasionally to put suspension into tight tolerance mode for wheel align when new tyres fitted - and to re-set the service interval. Have also turned on "global lock" and changed a couple of other optional settings.

    We now have a service place in town where they have a lot of Land Rover experience and obviously are set up with the gear to read / change code as appropriate. First time they serviced the D4, they didn't know how to re-set the service interval, so I did it at home with the GAP tool. Most recent service though (140K which included both timing belts, transmission service and new pan plus normal book service) - the service interval was re-set when I picked it up.
    Prior to this business (GoldFields Off Road) being established - there was no other business in town with the gear to even read Land Rover code - and I suspect that you will find much the same in most places north of Geraldton.

    As LRL414 said - "it's one of those things that seems a waste of money, until it's not".
